As this is my first post to the boards, I thought I'd say HELLO! and thank yall for the great info I've found lurking around here. As I now have a speedy internet connection of my own, I thought I'd creep out from the shadows and join the conversation. Anyways, my question: How important do you think a pre-med committee letter is for adcoms? I know not all schools do them, so I was thinking that maybe they aren't a big deal. But if yours does, do you think it will look badly on an application if you don't have one? I only ask b/c I feel like my premed advisor is ******ed and has ill-advised me (and others) at certain times on critical things and I just don't enjoy dealing with her. I also thinks she doesn't like me too much after giving her my opinion on some of her advising strategies. Anyways, what do you guys think, do committee letters weigh heavily on an applicaiton? Thanks all for your responses.
